To blog or not to blog? That is the question. But, and this is a big but, what is the answer? I remember starting a blog many years ago when blogging first became a ‘thing’. Another something that I could try my hand at. I think it was on a platform called blogspot. Does blogspot still even exist? It was a short-lived experience as I got bored pretty quickly and lost interest. Though in reality I most likely had many other things on the go back then (to be honest not much has changed on that score). It was one of those things I started but failed to finish or more aptly failed to continue for one reason or another that for the life of me I cannot recall at this time. It may come back to me but more likely it will not. I probably jumped on the bandwagon because it sounded new and exciting. In fact I think I only wrote and published one or two posts before deleting it all into virtual oblivion. Perhaps I stopped because I felt as though I had nothing worth writing Β about, and little to say on anything in particular. I have raised this question after having read an interesting post titled ‘It’s 2020. Is Blogging Still Worth It?’ by Christian Mihai, The Art of Blogging which made me ponder my question ‘To blog or not to blog?’

I ask myself why am I blogging or trying to blog? What am I trying to do here? I have actually published 115 posts which is a lot by some peoples standards and a piddling amount compared to others. Posts which are a mishmash (is that a real word?) of content, from poems to photos, memoirs, snippets of unfinished stories, and musings or moanings on this wonderful, glorious thing that is life. Of course, I should perhaps not compare what I do, to what others do, but actually, of course Β I do. I’d be lying if I said I did n’t! By looking at the work of others, does not one find inspiration to try harder, to become better, to write more, and to become more proficient in the art of blogging, and maybe at some stage write something to be truly proud of and that may in some way change someone’s life for the better.

I would like to say I have found my niche but this eclectic personality of mine has this tendency to get in the way more often than not. I wonder whether I will ever just settle to specialise in something specific? I have always been this way. It’s like I have this issue about being pigeon-holed in any way, shape or form, and yet the reality is that I would like to stop being a Jack of all trades, and become Master of one. However, I do not see how that is possible when I flit from one thing to another, and for the most part enjoy the variety, the diversity, the colours that come from changing my tune and dancing a different dance.

So getting back to my question of ‘To blog or not to blog? I think for now I shall attempt to keep this ‘thing’ this ‘space’ in the blogosphere going for the time being. I am so grateful for all the interaction and engagement from those who have stopped by here. Time is so precious and for someone to read something I have written is a wonderful gift.

Thank you so much!

Blessed be!

Liola

  1. These posts are among my favourite kind, and it’s especially nice to see yours now, when I’ve been questioning the same thing. We must be in sync, Liola. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• I love your thoughts on it, and am very glad you will continue. I have decided along the same lines for now… In spite of my occasional anxieties or flat points, blogging’s a fun thing for me, most of the time, and life’s too short not to have good creative fun where one can find it. πŸŽ‰
